I got another plant, thanks Lori. It's called a sensitive plant, native to Brazil and has pink or purple little flowers. But thats not the coolest part. When you touch the leaves ... they close ... by themselves. OOoooooooooo.
It was brought into the coffee shop where Lori introduced it to a customer as a special plant, he replied: "can we smoke it?" No, but he was fascinated when she blew lightly on the leaves and they retracted. And again, OOOOoooooooooooo. It was fun. And now Teddy has a window partner.

a girl at the farmers' market tried to show Gibbs a sensitive fern. He was too scared to take his face out of my collar, however. Maybe he can see yours.

I'm cultivating my own little graveyard of houseplants in my windowsill.
